Discussion in 'Fly Swaps' started by Ed Call, Dec 8, 2009.
I'm in for a couple flies.
Flies have been sent
Thanks CCW, I'll be looking forward to their arrival.
I have not updated this thread in a bit. I'll call this one full unless someone really wants to add to the collection. We've got nearly 20 fly tiers. I'm happy that what I've started should help the cause.
I received flys from Camo Clad Warrior today. He slipped in a note saying these were productive flies and he also tied some for the Secret Santa Swap. Since that swap's deadline and drawing has not yet hit the streets I'm not going to spoil Christmas by posting any photos just yet. Thanks Camo Clad Warrior, these flies are HOT flies for sure and will make someone in the Secret Santa Swap and the charity auction very happy. Thanks again to all who have tolerated my antics and joined the swap to benefit the Soroptomists near me.
No Problem mumbles...Keep an eye out for my swap.Iplan on starting one after the holidays.
I'm always looking for a swap to get into. I think the pressure to tie fishable flies and try to make each one identical has really been great. I'll keep an eye out. (or you can call me out in public like Daconil did, an effective tactic)
My Soroptomist contact emailed me to ask about progress. I told her flies had already started arriving. She has some paperwork for me to fill out. I'm wondering if you all mind using your names as donating items to their cause. If you please, send me a PM to tell me your real name, if you wish to be anonymous or if you are okay with being named in the list of fly tiers. Thanks.
Well overdue for me to update the first post...flies in hand (all awesome ties too) from CCW, DocSpratley, Western and just in yesterday MItransplant. This swap has been a success so far and will even get more impressive as the rest of the flies roll in. Thanks to all.
How is everyone doing? Would it be possible to have these all in hand within the next week or so? I'd like to get it wrapped up and delivered to the Soroptomists. Thanks all.
I need your addy again. I did not keep it from the Xmas swap and as I said I was running behind due to my self induced fiasco. Anywho, I have flies ready to ship.
my flies are done and will be in the mail tomorrow, am sending them via usps priority. k
i had a mental blackout moment at the post office, and they went out today at first class, but forgot the priority. but they are on the way.
Kim, glad you saved a bit of money, first class will get them here in plenty of time. Thank you.
Kim and Richard's flies arrived today. Kim was overly self critical about these ties, they are nothing less than awesome. Richard went salt water and trout on me with a nice assortment. Thanks gents. I'll try to get photos done up and into the gallery soon. I still have to get photos of Kal's flies in the gallery too.
I think I've got the photos of all the flies up. If you don't see yours let me know. We are at over a hundred flies so far. I hope I've not skipped anyones!
FishDontCare in the clubhouse with an impressive assortment. Thank you! Photos to follow.

Thanks guys. I've got to get the donation paperwork filled out for all these amazing flies and get the boxes ready for their auction.
